Only 3 members of Memphis Outdoor Adventures were able to make this hike, but we had a great hike … and of course, good food afterward!
Awesome hike on Arabian Trail. Then rain and wind made it feel like 50 degrees!
My favorite high point so far. Great views, a visitor center with displays and a short movie, and a pretty drive in. Not to mention awesome weather
Love this one
Interesting high point: there are three routes, one entirely by foot (I didn't take), one by car to the parking lot and shuttle to the top (I didn't take), and finally by car to the parking lot and 0.6 mile steep, switchbacked paved trail to the top. I took this one and am glad I did, as I got there at 4:30pm and they were closing at 5:00pm.
This is a pretty cool area and a nice little trail to the Summit!
I must agree with the author of this page when he says "No matter how you hike it, this is one of the most enjoyable Eastern U.S. highpoints". It just a cool mountain and so unexpected for a non-mountainous state like GA. Huge summit platform/tower gives one access to beautiful views in all directions. I just hiked up the paved trail from the parking lot, didn't use the shuttle bus service.
Nice hike from Jack's Gap! Sure glad I remembered the bug spray; it's definitely needed.
It was a picture postcard day. Just perfect. The views were just incredible...
Very touristy feel to it for a state highpoint. I love the panoramic views from all points of the tower, though.
Nice well kept area. Took the bus up from the lot. The USGS marker is inside a locked door at the center.
Great hike on a perfect day!
Remnants of Tropical Storm Nate really kept me from enjoying this summit. It was cold and windy with no visibility but what a great experience...I will have to come back!
Barely made summit before sunset. On a work trip, I rented a convertible Mustang and ran upstate to make this sunset. Saw a few bats flying on the way down.
At least I walked the final half mile. Lots of folks out today since the weather was great.
Third of a 5 HP long weekend. Alone at top, 21 degrees with nice wind. Great views, except for the multiple fires in the visible area. On to South Carolina from here...
Did this first thing in the morning, and had the entire place to ourselves. Views were really good, but lots of fires in the area.
